Commissioner Chris Boice has lived in Douglas County since 1994. His wife was raised in South Douglas County and their four children were all born here. Commissioner Boice is committed to this great county and has owned and operated small businesses since 2002.
Commissioner Boice became involved in public service due to his interest in giving back to the community and recognizing the need for his generation to step up and accept a leadership role in government. The County is experiencing a significant revenue shortfall due to reduced harvest levels of timber from Federal Lands. We can no longer promise County services and proposed changes in County operations without also talking about how to balance our budget. His goal is to work to streamline government programs and ensure that we operate with a balanced budget. He has also been a committed and consistent force for economic development in Douglas County.
